The New Generation Hyundai i30 will be unveiled at the Paris Motor show later this month. This new three door joins the five door hatchback and the Hyundai Tourer to extend the broad appeal of Hyundai’s ‘made for Europe’ C-segment range to an even wider audience.
The exterior of the new Hyundai i30 has dynamic styling, the new model has a more angular glasshouse silhouette and longer front doors providing the dynamic profile, and the effect is enhanced by changes to front and rear styling. A new, black-finished mesh insert and central bar accentuate Hyundai’s hexagonal grille. The rear of the car features a remodelled lower bumper area which includes new horizontal, sculpted fog lamps that contrast with the upright units of the five-door. These lights and a new black insert at the bottom of the bumper create the impression of a wider, sportier rear design. Exclusive 16-inch alloy wheels complete the exterior transformation.
The New Generation i30 is offered with a choice of four engines and five power outputs, together with six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. The highlight of the powertrain range is the ‘U-II’ 1.6-litre diesel engine, generating 128PS yet emitting only 97g/km of CO2. Together, these figures deliver the best power-to-efficiency ratio in the segment.
